i don't think that is the consensus though, monahan is ahead by 1 on buttons rankings, behind by 1 on mackenzies rankings and behind by one on the ISS rankings... it's essentially a toss-up between the 2 of them at this point
so being that it is a toss up, here is where i would give each the advantage:
monahan - larger, more used to the NHL-style game, exceptionally good on faceoffs
lindholm - has played against men so his numbers have come against men, not juniors, might be a little more creative with the puck
i think we do well by drafting either actually, and the size thing doesn't bug me as much since lindholm is known for playing gritty
